NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows

Hey Guys!

I was recently lucky enough to get the chance to try out some of the new NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, when you first look at the eyeshadows they look very metallic and you would think that would be how they apply, maybe a little too much? Well i was surprised! These eyeshadows have a really beautiful almost satin finish when applied onto the lids, I will say that the darker ones more so than the lighter shades as the lighter ones do tend to have more of a metallic effect. 

when swiping my brush into the miniature shadows i wasn’t sure how the pigmentation would transfer onto my lids, but again, i was surprised, rather impressed as i have never seen anything like it! The pigmentation of these shadows were of such a lovely consistency, very smooth and creamy, pigmented but not at all crumbly or chalky. just buttery. 

you can apply these with either your fingers, a brush, a big fluffy blending brush or wet. When applied wet, the pigmentation is even more vivd. Could that be possible right? Well try it for yourself and see! I love these eyeshadows. I have the shades Subra and Dione. Subra is more of a rustic plum shade, Perfectly described as a ‘black orchid’ great for Autumn/Winter. This is my favourite shadow, its the most pigmented and just complements my eye colour! Dione is one I’ve heard a lot of bloggers talk about recently, its a really pretty champagne beige shade with underlying taupe elements.

I do find with these, that if you’re planning to wear them both day and through to night, use a primer and maybe a slight touch up would be needed but other than that, i can’t say anything bad about these little beauties.

If you haven’t given these a swatch yet, i recommend you do (or don’t) as you may just fall in love with them! These eyeshadows currently retail for £21 UK.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick – Pink Quartz

IMG_3303

Hey Guys!

So some of you (if not all) may have seen and heard about the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz everywhere. Its been shown in blog posts, youtube videos, magazine and of course on famous celebrities. If you don’t already know, i am obsessed with highlighters, dewy skin, glowing radiance and all that good stuff, but guess what, I’ve never owned a Bobbi Shimmer Brick before?! Yes i know… total disaster right?

I finally picked my first one up, and i decided to try the Pink Quartz because it looked so pretty and natural, a blush/highlighter i could wear not only in spring/summer but that i could wear all year round. as this has enough colour to put a pop of champagne pink onto the cheeks it would work well over the top of any autumn/winter blushes you might like to wear too.

I love this! Its totally owned up to my expectations! Pop this on with a fluffy blush brush like the Real Techniques Blush Brush and you have a radiant complexion. Another great handy thing about this is that it has a really good size mirror, perfect for us girls on the go!

On days where i want a ‘simple’ makeup day. I fill in my brows, apply concealer under my eyes and this all over my face; cheeks, cheekbones, bridge of the nose and a bit on the chin and cupids bow. Then my friends i am good to go!

The perfect ‘Grey’ Nail-polish

Hey Guys!

I have always been the type of person who goes for the pastel pale nail colours over the deep vampy purples or bright pinks, because i am generally a very fair person, although i tan quite olive in the summer, i don’t have naturally very strong, long nails and pale pastel shades help to not only give the appearance of longer nails, but also make me look that little bit more tanned. If you watch my channel, youl probably know that I’m pretty obsessed with the colour grey at the moment! Its pretty much all my wardrobe has been until recently.

However, find the perfect grey polish isn’t like finding the perfect grey top. Its damn right impossible. Although there are some really pretty grey/purple shades out there, thats just it, they’re grey/purple, all the polishes I’ve come across have some kind of blue, taupe or purple tinge/undertone to them and thats not what I’ve been after.

so the search continued…

Until finally… i stumbled across the perfect pastel plane old ‘grey’. Thats it, no fussing, no mixture, just grey. Now i know that all grey polished are combined with the odd colours here and there to make it up, but this is the perfect pastel shade, its not too dark either and it last a long time. The only downside with this is that you may need at least 2-3 coats of the stuff to get a proper opaque look, but to be honest, after the amount of searching I’ve been doing, I’m not too bothered!

The shade is Cool Touch by Maybelline
